Mad about yarn? Get ready for a autumn cardigan mystery!
Regn, Swedish for “rain”, is worked from the top down and in one piece, using worsted or aran weight yarn – making this a good wardrobe piece for autumn and winter. It’s a good opportunity to play around a bit with colors, but it can also be worked using just one or two. The fit is relaxed – preferably the same or slightly larger than your actual bust circumference. Sleeves are full length, but this is of course up to your personal preference. And not to forget – the whole garment is worked in garter stitch, so not a purl stitch in sight!
The pattern will be published in five different clues, as follows:
